• {DIY} Washi Eggs + Easter Egg Centerpiece

    I’ve got another fun DIY for you today from Mariana from So Much Life.  She’s sharing a fun washi tape Easter egg project with us today with a bonus project of making your washi eggs into a cute table centerpiece.  The first project is perfect for those of you with little ones too – a no mess way to decorate eggs.  Enjoy!

    What you’ll need for both projects:  washi tape, hardboiled eggs, egg carton box, ribbon of choice, skewers, hot glue gun, acrylic paint & paint brush
    Project 1:
    Step 1: Paint the half egg carton box and let it dry.
    Step 2: While the paint dries, coat the eggs one by one with washi tape, and give it a patchwork look.
    Step 3: Arrange the eggs in the painted box.
    Project 2:
    Step 1: Place a dash of hot glue on the tip of the stick and carefully enter the egg. Pour more hot glue around the egg just to fix it (with polystyrene eggs, do not use hot glue, just insert the stick into the egg).
    Step 2: Coat the eggs with washi tape pieces until it is fully covered.
    Step 3: Tie a ribbon at the end of the egg (where the stick starts) and tie a little bow on it!

    Aren’t those so cute? I’m really loving the washi egg idea, and you could do it on plastic eggs or hardboiled (or even foam ones). If you do it on plastic eggs you could decorate each half seperately so you can still put goodies inside for the little ones.

    Here’s a little roundup of other ways I love to decorate eggs for Easter:

    What’s your favorite way to decorate eggs?  Charlie and I will be coloring them the old fashioned way, although this tip makes it much easier for little hands.  Happy decorating!

      what a brilliant idea – I LOVE WASHI TAPE. It’s awesome how it looks like patchwork on the eggs – so pretty.

    •  7 months old today, but momma won't be taking your 7 month photo today (probably not tomorrow either) because I'm so tired from your sleeping more like a 7 week old than a 7 month old. Did you not get the 3rd baby memo? If you don't give me more sleep soon I'm going to pull a Lindsay Lohan and check myself into a nice facility due to my "exhaustion" (except in my case it really will be exhaustion). Then who will you wake up all night, huh? So can you try and just wake me up once a night? Instead of 3? Deal? DEAL!!!? #seriouslysotired #quincyrhys  Mama said there'd be days like this... Just not 200 of them in a row  good thing the company's cute. Also, currently loving this playmat from @lollalandusa - it's big and soft and cleans easily. And now we can practice sitting without worrying about head bumps when he falls over  #quincyrhys #OLDfavefinds
       I can hardly believe Quincy was ever this tiny. And now he's 7 months tomorrow. Since we are out of the infant baby gear/clothing phase, I'm selling it all at a deep discount now at @ohlovelydaysale (including this playmat!) and more this weekend if you are local. See the flyer a few posts back and head to my sale feed. Tag your expecting friends or the mom's of new babes that are in So Cal! #OLDsamplesale  Got one little corner of the boys' soon-to-be-shared bedroom done today. Once the bunkbeds arrive I may totally rearrange things but for now I'm loving this @thelandofnod table for reading, doing puzzles, and there is a hidden bin underneath where I have a Lego topper hidden so we can make it a Lego table too. And store those puzzles with all of the little pieces that drive me insane  Can't wait to finish and share more of this room (and move Cal in so I can move Quincy into the nursery and maybe get a little more sleep!) You can see the design process and inspiration that I did with the design services team from The Land of Nod on the blog as well (link in profile). #projectsharedboysbedroom #calvins3rdyear
